I am trying to set up a SunOS 4.1.3 system on our local ethernet. This system had been previously installed on another network. When I boot the system, I get an error saying "rpc.statd cannot talk to statd on[name]". I configured the IP address according to our network scheme (192.9.200.x) and rewrote the host table.

What is this error and how do I resolve it? Also, how do you set subnet masks? This system was given to us by one of our customers, and no documentation was included.

Thanks in advance,
Nate Gagne

i dont have the answer for your statd problem

but there is where you can set your subnet.

(hostname):/etc # cat /etc/netmasks
# The netmasks file associates Internet Protocol (IP) address
# masks with IP network numbers.
#       network-number  netmask
# The term network-number refers to a number obtained from the Internet Network
# Information Center.  Currently this number is restricted to being a class
# A, B, or C network number.  In the future we should be able to support
# arbitrary network numbers per the Classless Internet Domain Routing
# guidelines.
# Both the network-number and the netmasks are specified in
# "decimal dot" notation, e.g:

Hi ngagne,

rpc.statd is used by the nfs file locking service rpc.lockd.

When an nfs server is rebooted it notifies any of its clients using rpc.statd.

It looks like your machine could be trying to connect to an nfs server on the other network.
